Barbara Gardner, age 70, of Brooksville, passed away peacefully on March 11, 2023. Barbara was born to the late Mary and Robert Semple in St. Petersburg, FL. She graduated from St. Petersburg High and went on to earn her B.S. in Business Administration from UF in ‘74. Her final career was as a real estate agent. Barbara is survived by her darling David, husband of 37 years, and many other loving family and friends who will miss her dreadfully. She was the biggest personality in any room and made gatherings lively. Barbara will be forever in our hearts. Friends, family, and Gator fans are asked to raise a glass to her.
